Subject Re: mod_proxy_http2
Date Tue, 09 Feb 2016 17:21:08 GMT
I had the effect that when a socket was determined to be dead, the SNI was cleared and a new
connection was made without any SNI. So, I save the first ssl_hostname I see and set that
on every new connection.

That should affect mod_proxy_http as far as I can tell. Maybe someone with more experience
in that module wants to take a look.
